The Laura Flanders Show

A Forgotten Coup & Americans on the Frontlines of Democracy

Episode 316 | 26m 46s | Video has closed captioning.

The Congressional hearings into the events of January 6 show that just a handful of election officials stood between Donald Trump and the overturning of the 2020 elections. This has happened before — more than a century ago in Wilmington, North Carolina when an armed mob removed a democratically-elected government by force. We look at the parallels between that coup and the events in DC.
